I want to find a track close to my house, to practice on. I've Never been on one. I'm afraid I'll show up and get run over. :ride: Anything I should know? Are they busy? Are some better than others?

I'm sooo new :|

Don't worry about what's coming up behind you, and try to get out of their way. If you are in front of someone, it's your line, if they want around you, they will find a way. However, be predictable, don't randomly shift from left to right on the track.

When going over a jump, don't cross from one side to the other, unless that's what the rest of the riders do on that particular jump..

Take it easy the first few laps, figure out the flow, and have fun.

Be warned...your first post they will probably tease you a bit. Give it back to them if its in you. They mean no harm...just having a bit of fun. They will mellow...but there are not a lot of gals over there and they get a little excited at first.

Most of them are good people. I'd say meet them at the tracks when you can. There is a big ride coming up too...same weekend as the Poker run so we won't be going.

If you can, take a friend with you. Then ask them to ride your pace in front of you for a few laps. Following someone around a track (especially an unfamiliar one) makes things much easier and gives you focus.
